Presentation tips

Make your slides as visual as possible. Avoid lots of text and bulleted lists. Slides shouldn't be a script; they should be the background to what you are saying

Always have a backup plan if the wifi or internet connection doesn't work. 

Present about what you really care about and your enthusiasm will come through to your audience.

Make action happen

When presenting, make it interactive. Show, model, have them do. They must be able to take something with them.

Presenting Tips

The best presentations come from sharing something that you are passionate about! My tips to rock a presentation:
  • Bring the fun! If you want participants to have fun, you better be having fun yourself!
  • Let your passion shine- it will be contagious
  • Take the time to get to know your audience. Use interactive tools/backchannels such as TodaysMeet or Twitter to share resources, ideas, and questions during the presentation.

Be confident. Be patient. Be you!

1. Remember to be confident. You most likely know more that anyone else in the room about your topic. 
2. When you start to feel nervous or experience any technical difficulties, remember that you are surrounded by people who WANT you to succeed. Lean on them.
3. You were selected to present at #CUE16 for a reason. You're awesome. Just remember that and have fun! This is an amazing opportunity that you deserve!!

Present on things you know without having to think about them!

If you present on topics you know, you feel, you understand all the way to your core then you are able to present naturally and answer questions without having to think of an answer. Plus, participants know when a presentation is from a person who practices what they preach versus those who just prepare a speech.

First time presenting at National CUE, super nervous, but I know everyone is as excited about tech as I am, so that helps :)

Its my first time presenting at National CUE, but I have a couple friends that have presented before and they have shared a couple tips with me:
1- Download your presentation to your hard drive just in case wi-fi goes down
2- Have screenshots in the presentation, just in case the wi-fi goes down
3- Enthusiasm is contagious, use that to your advantage

presenting tips!

Be early and have a screen up that shows people where to find your resources.
Download your presentation (into ppt from google slides) in case the wifi is sticky.
Go to the bathroom before.
Be upbeat!
